Looking Glass

Critics Consensus

Looking Glass gives Nicolas Cage a chance to turn in an atypically understated performance, but this is still a suspense thriller with a fatal dearth of suspense or thrills.

  • The result is a hollow vehicle that Cage simply floats through on autopilot, and he peers through a mirror at a more exciting world beyond his grasp, it's impossible not to relate.

  • Nicolas Cage dials it down a few notches for a derivate thriller about strange doings at a desert motel.

    It's nice to see Cage get through a movie without doing the thing he usually does, but Looking Glass is pretty much a non-event.
